Love Bank Park Redevelopment

Coming: Winter 2022

Love Bank Park was founded in 2015 by the community. On two vacant lots at the corner of Cherokee St. and Nebraska, business owners and neighbors came together to install a basketball hoop for neighborhood youth and to create a space where the community could come together — to bank on love.

Today the Cherokee Street Community Improvement District is launching a redevelopment project for the park — turning Love Bank into a stronger asset for our street & surrounding community. Developed with input from neighborhood stakeholders, friends, and family, the new vision for the park creates updated spaces to enjoy while keeping Love Bank Park a safe and welcoming benefit to neighbors of all ages.

A Park for All

Whether you're into chess or pop-up markets, seeing a live concert or relaxing in the shade as you wait for the bus, the new Love Bank Park will offer new amenities for the street's diverse community, while preserving core elements of the park.

A New Basketball Court

The new park will feature an improved basketball court — the perfect size for pick up games and half-court tournaments. What's more, the court will be the first permeable basketball court in the region.

A Hub for Arts & Culture

The new shade structure & built-in stage will allow the community to come together for concerts, speaker series or small events with ease, and will provide shade for everyday users.

In addition to more planting beds & small trees, the new park prioritizes sustainability through permeable pavement and rainscaping.
